Rounders

Factual error: After Mike sets Worm up at the club and leaves, Worm asks for $2,000 of debt in Mike's name to sit at what was moments before identified as a $20/$40 limit game. The woman is next seen putting four rows of green $25 chips into a chip rack. A $20/$40 game would never be played with $25 chips because this denomination makes it very difficult or impossible to bet the required amount, at least without $5 chips to make change on every bet, which would be extremely tedious. Rather, $20/$40 games are played with $20 chips made specifically for games of those stakes, and they are usually yellow in color.

Revealing mistake: The movie is set in New York, but in the final scene you can see a sticker on the door of the law school that says "Smoking in this building" where the bottom reads "State University of New Jersey".

Trivia: Johnny Chan was only supposed to be a technical advisor for the writers of the film, but his daughter wanted to meet Matt Damon so they went to the set, and since he was there the writers wrote the casino scene and put Chan in it, that's how he got in the movie.
